The current world scene seems all the same. There is one opinion article I read that seemed to be right on spot about the responsibilities of the State, Intelligence Services, Armed and Security Forces and society in general.
It’s an article written by a former Intelligence Officer and it even compares the type of investment made before this pandemic.
And one of the things that I was amazed is that he is the only one I see naming this pandemic World War III.
This is World War III and the enemy is microscopic and invisible. An enemy that knows no truce and will fight until it is wiped out. An enemy that, unlike hunger or other world diseases (which we protect ourselves with vaccines or simple conscious detachment), does not stop when it finds privileges and will do everything to annihilate us. The trenches are the streets and have been dug outside our homes.
Thus, the result of the failure of an early warning, which is the exclusive responsibility of the Intelligence Services, is being paid for with lives and could potentially be catastrophic, not only in terms of personal and professional consequences for all Portuguese, but also impact equivalent to a nuclear bomb in our society, in the financial sector and in the economy of Portugal. It seems likely that, many years from now, you will still feel the effect of your radiation and the side effects.
Sorry that I didn’t translate it because it is in Portuguese and I’m not very good in translation to English.
